Having two horses to feed I tried the two following methods:—First, I took a grist to the mill, consisting of half corn and half oats for feed. Counting the toll at the mill, waste, and loss ot time, it cost one-seventh of the grist. I save all this now by soaking the feed in water tor about two hours, with just ahout as much as will cover it, which makes it greatly increase in bulk, and the horses thrive just as well on it as on ground feed.
